The USA is a real mixed bag on the weather front, which is no surprise given its size. Florida boasts temperatures in the high 20s in autumn and spring, with things getting much hotter in the summer months. Showers and thunder are more frequent around this time, but they blow over pretty quickly. And hurricane season is between June and November, although serious storms are pretty rare. On the east coast, New York veers from the 30s in July to almost-freezing in January and February. This is the time that you are most likely to see the Big Apple blanketed in snow. In the west, Las Vegas’ desert climate means the seasons are not as dramatic. Temperatures consistently climb above 30°C between June and September and dip to around 15°C in the winter. It is pretty rare to be caught in a shower here, too.
Both Shannon and Dublin airports offer a US preclearance facility. This means that you can go through immigration and essentially enter the United States before you have even left Irish soil. This is a huge time-saving aspect of travelling to the States
